Product stock settings

When you create a product using one of the built in templates, the stock setting will be set up in the usual way for the particular product type. This article covers what each setting means, so you can change these if needed, or set these up correctly for new product types.

To get to product settings, first navigate to a product, and then click "Stock".

Note: You cannot edit the stock settings of a product when you have a stocktake in draft. You will need to submit or delete the stocktake to be able to change stock settings.

You will see the following fields:

Measurement unit - This is what you would measure this product in e.g. pints, ml, grams. If the product has measures you will specify them in measurement units.

Order unit - This is what you order this product in e.g. keg, bottle, case. When you add an order or delivery you will specify the quantity in order units.

Order unit size - This is the number of measurement units that are in one order unit of the product e.g. 88 for pints in a keg of beer, or 500 for grams in a bag of flour etc.

Minimum stock - This is the minimum number of order units of this product that you always want to have on hand.

PAR level stock - If you have PAR level ordering enabled you will see a PAR level field. This is the level of stock to order to, that you know will get you through until your next order.

Current Stock - this is the number of order units the system expects you to have in stock currently for the product. This is based on the most recent stock take you have entered, any delivery notes since, and any sales made since.

Cost price - this is the cost price of one order unit

Line check - you can tick this box if you wish to include this product in your line checks

That covers all of the stock setting for a product that you both order and sell. For products that you make in house from other products, such as food items or cocktails, see adding product recipes.

Supplier - Before you can place orders with your suppliers through the back office, and to see suggested stock orders, you will need to allocate the correct supplier to each of your products. To do this go to the 'Advanced' tab and select a supplier from the dropdown list of available suppliers.

If you haven't added any suppliers yet, see Adding Suppliers.

Supplier Product Code - You can enter the product code your supplier uses for the product, which will then include this on any orders you email to the supplier.
